I just tried some in my 338 Ultra mag with some 225 gr. Barnes TTSX and shot a 3 shot .625 group at 300 yds.

NIIIICE.

I'm hoping for the same results with the 115 Berger, and good retained velocity too. Although I wont know until I actually HIT something at 600, like a watermelon or something, then shoot another projectile at the same target and distance to compare.

Jam the Berger in the lands and load it starting with 50 grains of RL22 or a middle load of 4831SC and you will likely find something that will get you where you want to be just work it up from there. My 6.5s generally like the Berger a little off the lands but with the 25-06s I have worked with it seems to do best in the lands.

I wouldn't worry about fireforming with a reduced load. Just load up what you are shooting and have at it. That little bit if case dimension won't make any difference.

All of your full length dies are made to set on the shell holder tight enough to cam over on the up stroke if it don't it will not resize the head of the case.
read the instructions for setting up the die.
